DENIM DAY 2010
Date/Time: (Local times) 04/21/2010, 9:00am - 9:00pm
Location: National USA
Event Sponsor: Peace Over Violence
Peace Over Violence is proud to present the Annual Denim Day USA 2010, a campaign to raise awareness and educate the public about rape and sexual assault.
In 1998, an Italian Supreme Court decision overturned a rape conviction because the victim wore jeans, reasoning she must have helped her attacker remove them. People all over the world were outraged.
Wearing jeans became an international symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault.
This day we unite against the sexual assault of girls, women, boys and men. We stand in support of survivors. We break the silence to end sexual violence.
On Denim Day, wear your jeans as a visible sign of protest against the myths that still surround sexual assault!

There was an Italian court that allowed the person who raped a victim to win the case. How did that happen? The judge was convinced from the excuse: the victim was wearing jeans, so this means the victim can be raped.
